So, I think that I’m going to put a little disclaimer at the beginning of this recipe to let you know that this. is. not. healthy. and my motto has and always will be everything in moderation. You’ll find recipes on my blog like homemade spaghetti sauce seasoning, whole wheat mixed berry shortcakes and healthy lunchbox ideas, but then you’ll also find recipes like apple crisp with snickerdoodle cookie crust, chocolate covered strawberry OREO truffles and brownie smores made with Peeps.
I only call this “tiramisu” because the pumpkin, pudding and Cool Whip mixture soaks into the chocolate chip cookies while sitting overnight and creates a delicious cookie dough flavored dessert.
The trick is to use the store-bought Chips Ahoy cookies (not the chewy version).
Layer the Cool Whip mixture and the cookies in a Trifle Bowl or 9×13 pan and layer ending with the whipped topping. Let sit overnight so all of that pumpkin pudding and whipped topping can soak in the cookies!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Tiramisu
1 pkg (3.9oz) instant pudding
(1) 16 oz. of whipped topping
3/4 cup cold milk
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 family size packages of Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Mix the pudding with milk and whisk for 2 minutes.
- Fold in the whipped topping, pumpkin puree and cinnamon.
- Start layering with the pumpkin mixture, followed by the cookies and continue to the top of the Trifle Bowl or until you’ve used all of your ingredients.
- Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
(I used a white chocolate pudding mix and there is only a subtle pumpkin flavor in the dessert. If you like stronger pumpkin flavor, use a pumpkin pie pudding mix and add 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon).
This dessert is an adaptation of this Kraft recipe called Cookies and Milk Dessert. I also created a different version (Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Tiramisu) made with espresso and marscapone cheese. There are so many different variations you can do with the pudding flavor and spices! This recipe contains a few Amazon affiliate links. Thank you!
